The Voss family is anything but normal. They live in a repurposed church, newly baptized Dollar Voss. The once cancer-stricken mother lives in the basement, the father is married to the mother’s former nurse, the little half-brother isn’t allowed to do or eat anything fun, and the eldest siblings are irritatingly perfect. Then, there’s Merit.
Thank you The Orangutan Librarian for nominating me for this award! It is called the Brotherhood of the World Award and it mostly includes questions about your blog.
In May last year I created a list of ten Young Adult books that I wanted to read by the end of 2017. They were all books that I was really looking forward to reading at the time, and wanted to order them so I would remember the next YA book I wanted to read. I managed to read most of them and have reasons as to why I didn't read the others.
Publication Date: 6 May 2014 Publisher: Simon & Schuster Genre: Young Adult Contemporary Pages: 464 Synopsis It was Sloane who yanked Emily out of her shell and made life 100% interesting. But right before what should have been the most epic summer, Sloane just…disappears. All she leaves behind is a to-do list. On it, thirteen Sloane-inspired tasks that Emily … Continue reading Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson Review
There are only a few days until 2018, which means I need to share my favourite books of 2017! I have read 53 books in 2017 and five of those have become new favourites.
It seems as though there is a shortage of Christmassy books due to Christmas only lasting around one month (or less, or more, depending how you look at it). I have only read three books that are Christmas-related and, coincidentally, they are all Young Adult. Today is Day 2 of my 6 Days of Blogmas posts and I thought it would be odd if there was not at least one post about Christmassy books!
There are twelve days until Christmas and it is Day 1 of my Christmas-related blog posts! The first post is a Christmas book tag. The Festive Christmas Book Tag was created by GirlReading on YouTube.
Christmas is a very enjoyable time of year for me and to celebrate its festiveness I am going to be posting Christmas/bookish posts in the days leading up towards the big day. Instead of posting everyday, I am going to post something every second day, but it will still be the twelve days leading up to Christmas. The first post will be up in two days! I will be using Australian time, so if you are from another time zone you may see it a day earlier. The posts won't all necessarily be Christmas-related or book-related, but it will be a good mix.
Jess @Reads and Dreams tagged me a while ago to do the Summer Reader book tag. It is summer in Australia, even though the entirety of December has only been between 16c-22c in Melbourne so far. It felt like it was over 30c everyday in November, so that is really weird. Summer is my favourite season because I love going outside when it is hot, and winter is stupid. Let's get onto the tag!
At the beginning of the year, I saw that PopSugar were hosting a reading challenge over 2017 and thought it would be a great challenge to keep in mind throughout the year. To be honest, I only looked at it once, but have read over 50 books this year and many of them related to one of the prompts. I didn't do all of them, but I did manage to do most!
